A New Jersey Right to Hunt and Fish Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure, upon voter approval, would have established a constitutional right to fishing, hunting, trapping and harvesting of game animals.[1][2][3]

At least three such legislatively-referred constitutional amendments were proposed in the 2014 legislative session. They included Assembly Concurrent Resolutions 12 and 94, as well as Senate Concurrent Resolution 22.

At the time in New Jersey, proposed constitutional amendments had two ways of achieving ballot access. The New Jersey Legislature could either qualify it with supermajority approval of 60 percent in one legislative session or with simple majorities in two successive sessions. This measure did not receive the necessary supermajority required for a 2014 ballot placement. ACR 12 and ACR 94 were introduced on January 16, 2014, and referred to the Assembly Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee.[5][6] SCR 22 was introduced on January 14, 2014, and referred to the Senate Environment and Energy Committee.[7]
